Excerpt: "It turns out that leaks at the Court—those involving high-profile decisions especially, including advance sheets leaked in an income tax case and advance word of the outcome in an important railroad case—may have accelerated the shift from compliments to criticism. Nearly everyone in the United States cared about those decisions, much like today, when a single Supreme Court opinion can instantly change the law of the entire country. And so, at those times in particular, the Court became like a sieve, facilitated, the justices would complain, by journalists eager for a scoop."

“Ye, the artist formerly known as Kanye West, lifted samples of a Texas pastor's recorded sermon to include in the song "Come to Life" on his 2021 album "Donda," according to a lawsuit filed Tuesday in Dallas federal court.”

"A Texas bankruptcy judge put on the front burner Friday motions to dismiss conspiracy theorist Alex Jones' Chapter 11 effort to channel to a court-supervised trust damage claims against him and his media empire, raised by survivors of the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre."

“State appellate court holds that a six-word email, accompanied by counsel's signature block, was sufficient to bind client to an unfavorable settlement agreement.”

Introduction: "A batch of 36 Mexican letters recently acquired by the Library not only offers a vivid description of the last months of the Second French Intervention in Mexico, including the Battle of Puebla (Cinco de Mayo) in 1862, but also the complex alliances of global powers jousting for influence in the Americas against the backdrop of the U.S. Civil War. The letters, obtained from a rare books dealer, offer a reminder that Cinco de Mayo is not a celebration of Mexican independence, as is often assumed in the U.S., but rather an unexpected victory over French invaders that also helped sound a death knell for the Confederates in the Civil War."
